We like to run the ball and play physical. Chance ran hard, Malcom ran hard,” Umayam said.

The offensive line, in key spots were able to take over the game,” Umayam said.

The Hawks are 3-4 going into their Homecoming game next week against Shorewood.

In the secondary, we need to lock down on the short passing routes, we’re giving up to much of that stuff,” Umayam said.
